The psychological damage created by torture has far-reaching effects on both the victim and the perpetrator. The extreme trauma leads to numerous mental health and behavioral complications, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, complex post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, and addiction. Some individuals even report being fascinated by the violence, exhibiting appetitively aggressive behavior. narrative exposure therapy, and narrative exposure therapy for forensic offender rehabilitation are two mental health interventions designed to treat both torture victims and perpetrators, respectively, and assist in the reintegration process into society.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2015</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Elbert, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Elbert, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2016-03-03T14:14:16Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Psychology of Torture and its Consequences</dcterms:title> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Meyer-Parlapanis, Danie</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Meyer-Parlapanis, Danie</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2016-03-03T14:14:16Z</dc:date> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
